Unintentional Natures

Unintentional Natures is an inquiry into how non-human entities comprehend the complexities of human urban settings. Our canine counterparts are among the most prominent of these non-humanentities. The project’s objective is to gain a deeper understanding of how dogs interpret the human-made structures of cities in their present state, given that they are not designed for them. The book’s visual exploration reflects the role of stray dogs in our communities, going beyond their negative connotation and treating them as significant members of society deserving of rights.

Red Roots Foundation

For one hundred years, the Armenian people have been suffering from the long-term mental health effects and trauma of the genocide perpetrated by the ottoman empire in 1915. This trauma has caused the Armenian community to close itself to outsiders and be skeptical of those around them. This mentality is slowly being passed downfrom generation to generation, myself included, and the only way to stop this from happening is to speak about our trauma and come together as a community; I created the identity and website for this foundation which is looking to educate on the history of the genocide and help bring Armenians together to upheave this trauma from our culture collectively.

Type: A Tool For Change

The late sixties were among the most politically charged times the modern world has ever seen. With nearly twenty countries protesting for labor rights, women’s rights, student rights, civil rights, and against war, the world was transformed into a playground for unrest. Each country found different methods of utilizing typography to revolt, some preferred screen printing while others hand drew their signage. But, one common denominator with all these different methods, is using type to evoke change. This book explores the correlation between typography and political change through images and documents the methods used by protestors during this time.

Domino Park

In 1882, Domino Sugar opened its first factory bordering the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The factory's opening marked a new beginning for the small Brooklyn community. In 2023, that small community had turned into a much bigger one. The original Domino Sugar factory has been repurposed as a market space, luxury apartment buildings have risen, and a park named after the factory was made. The identity I created for the park calls back to the blue-collar past of the area by using ink trap fonts and combining that with a condensed sans to speak to the new residents. I also utilized the classic yellow found on Domino Sugar packaging. The project's main goal was bridging these two worlds that once existed in Domino Park and turning them into one cohesive identity.
